Andre Trevor Puska, 20, showed up at the Clearwater, Fla., Radio Shack on Wednesday about six hours earlier than his scheduled shift that day, but it wasn’t because he got his schedule wrong.
Puskas walked into the store wearing a ski mask and carrying pepper spray and a stun gun to rob the Radio Shack. He sprayed an employee with the pepper spray but accidentally stunned himself as he tried to stun her.
Unsurprisingly, the clerk on duty took notice of Puskas' 6-foot-2, 280-pound (and familiar) frame, though Puskas didn’t say a word to her.
At that point, Puskas gave up on the robbery and fled, but showed up for work about six hours later. His large frame was a dead giveaway to detectives.
Puskas admitted to the robbery, saying he needed the money for car and cell phone payments. Police found the stun gun and pepper spray in his car. He is being held on $150,000 bail for attempted robbery.
